    SEV Biblia, Chapter 2:22

    Y fueron sanas las aguas hasta hoy, conforme a la palabra que habló Eliseo.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. So the waters were
    healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake .] In the name of the Lord; and not only they remained so unto the time of the writer of this history, but to the times of Josephus, as he testifies f18 , and even to ours; for there is a spring now called Elisha’s spring or fountain, of which Mr. Maundrell says f19 , “its waters are at present received in a basin about nine or ten paces long, and five or six broad; and from thence issuing out in good plenty, divide themselves into several small streams, dispersing their refreshment to all the field between this and Jericho, and rendering it exceeding fruitful.”

    So some other travellers say of it, that the water is very clear and cool, and issues in a copious steam. Pliny gives it the name of “Calirroe”, the beautiful stream, and speaks of it as hot, wholesome, and medicinal, and of great note.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 19-25 - Observe the miracle of healing the waters. Prophets should make ever place to which they come better for them, endeavouring to sweete bitter spirits, and to make barren souls fruitful, by the word of God which is like the salt cast into the water by Elisha. It was an ap emblem of the effect produced by the grace of God on the sinful hear of man. Whole families, towns, and cities, sometimes have a ne appearance through the preaching of the gospel; wickedness and evi have been changed into fruitfulness in the works of righteousness which are, through Christ, to the praise and glory of God. Here is curse on the youths of Bethel, enough to destroy them; it was not curse causeless, for it was Elisha's character, as God's prophet, tha they abused. They bade him "go up," reflecting on the taking up of Elijah into heaven. The prophet acted by Divine impulse. If the Holy Spirit had not directed Elisha's solemn curse, the providence of God would not have followed it with judgment. The Lord must be glorified a a righteous God who hates sin, and will reckon for it. Let youn persons be afraid of speaking wicked words, for God notices what the say. Let them not mock at any for defects in mind or body; especiall it is at their peril, if they scoff at any for well doing. Let parent that would have comfort in their children, train them up well, and d their utmost betimes to drive out the foolishness that is bound up in their hearts. And what will be the anguish of those parents, at the da of judgment, who witness the everlasting condemnation of their offspring, occasioned by their own bad example, carelessness, or wicke teaching __________________________________________________________________
